Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I love teaching at Plano ISD and I am excited about being part of the Virtual Academy this year! I graduated from Stephen F. Austin with a Bachelor's of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. This is my fifteenth year in education. I have experience teaching first, second and third grade. I love teaching reading and have a passion for helping my students become better readers and discover the wonder of a great book.
I live in McKinney with my wonderful husband, Ross. We have three lovely daughters; Madison, Ashton and Carsyn, as well as a son-in-law, Ricardo. The newest, tiniest and most adorable addition to our family is our granddaughter, Corrie. Madi, Ricky and Corrie live in College Station. Both Madi and Ricardo graduated from Texas A&M. Ashton attends Texas State University where she is studying Graphic Design and will graduate in May. Carsyn attends Texas Tech University where she is a Natural Resource Management major. We have two boy pups, Chase and Bandit. They are both quite spoiled. I like spending time with family, hiking, reading, shopping and decorating my house.
